A closer look at these handcrafted churches, once a home or a storefront, reveals details often missed as they are passed on urban streets. Choices of colors, and/or words, meant to draw the seeker in, are thought out and executed with various degrees of skill.
They are often neighbored by empty lots - the previous owner not blessed with the same non-profit, tax-exempt status that enables the church to stand. Like faith can sometimes be, these houses of worship are transient…here one day, gone the next. But, in their glory, they provide comfort and shelter; the same as can be found in any grand religious structure.
